"Every time I read 'Pride and Prejudice' I want to dig [Austen] up and hit her over the skull with her own shin-bone."I can't say I share Mr. Twain's opinion (though I do appreciate the wit), but it is interesting how critical appreciation of Ms. Austen's work has altered over time.
Pride and Prejudice in a lovely annotated edition edited by Patricia Meyer Spacks, as I read Jane's Fame, and the books dovetail nicely, as the annotations frequently expand on something Harman mentions, and vice versa.
Other random facts I've discovered:
-Jane Austen was so anonymous in her own time that only 2 authenticated sketches of her survive (both drawn by her sister), and one of those only shows her from behind!

The New York Times reports that Borders missed payments to its suppliers for the second month in a row, and speculates it is headed towards bankruptcy (read the whole story here).
I dearly hope they are able to restructure - I love the Johns Creek Borders, and would be devastated to lose a good book source!
Sounds like a good reason (as if I needed a reason *grin*) to head over there today and buy a book...
